this seems like a good idea but the only problem is that furthur is another program that many people would have to learn to use. Currently, bandwidth isn't too much of a problem, so there's no need. I think that the site may have the option of using bit torrent to download shows in the future (correct me if I'm wrong). This would share bandwidth much like furthur but the program is almost transperent..it is a lot easier to use. Hopefully the program will imporove...bt is a great idea but I have a few qualms with the program.

given the good work of the developers, we have done limited tests of bittorrent and onionnetworks. both seem to work pretty well. I hope we expand the uses of these systems.

it just seemed that furthur might be another option (not in replacement of the http and ftp access currently offered).

not a good idea. theoreticaly all that needs to be done is to just run an instance of further orr each server and include the contents as shared, but logicaly speaking here, if you can download off further you can get an ftp program and use that too. Not to mention, due to furthurs unbelivably stupid way of downloading each show in its entirety while giving you no choice as to what songs and in what order you download them, you dont have a stable resuming option compared to the archive. just a bad idea, stick to the http/ftp downloading.

unfortunetly, furthernet is incredibly slow, so integrating it with this project, may not help in the downloading of shows imo. Download the shows from further and then upload them here. makes life a lot easier
